New meditation voice over demo reel

Updated: May 19, 2022

Sit down and close your eyes.


Actually, wait. Sit down, press play on this, then close your eyes. But don't forget to open them afterwards.

I do a short guided meditation every morning and although I'm supposed to concentrate on my breathing during it, sometimes I... think about stuff.


On this particular morning I was listening to the person in the app, as I do every day. But this time, I was listening to it as a voiceover and it simply made me think "you should make a demo for this sort of stuff".


As with all demo reels, the idea is to show range in a short amount of time. Initially I thought it might be a tough task.


Surely there's only one voice for meditation - slow and soothing!

But actually, it turned out not so tough after all. And that's one of the main points of voice over - not the voice itself, but what you can do with it.

Within this demo there's welcoming and friendly; warm and caring; natural and chilled; slow and soothing (of course!); soft and relaxed.


Yes, they're all closely tied together and the end goal may be the same - to guide someone through a meditation - but there's more than one way to skin a cat, as they say (well, the cat skinners do).


If you have a guided meditation voiceover project in mind, then
